The CDC, Center of Disease Control is kicking off a new campaign: Fruits and Vegetables More Matters and offer a wonderful new recipe data base where I found this recipe. I haven't tried this one yet but plan to make it today. It's not gluten-free, but I've made the necessary ingredient changes for GF.

Check out their recipe website at this link:
